LAFAYETTE – A Terrebonne Parish man claims his former Houston-based did not pay him for all hours worked.
Douglas W. Verrett, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on April 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, Lafayette Division against Alliant Rigserv LLC alleging that the supply chain management company violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between February and March, plaintiff recorded works in excess of 40 hours per week billable to Deepwater Proteus and Deepwater Invictus and submitted the same to defendant. The plaintiff alleges he was paid a flat rate per day with no premium payment for working overtime hours.
The plaintiff holds Alliant Rigserv LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly regularly practiced to pay employees a flat daily rate regardless of the number of hours they actually worked and unlawfully terminated his employment for arriving late at work and without the 30 days’ written notice of termination of the contract.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order allowing this case to proceed as a collective action, award for all unpaid wages, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, costs of suit, interest and all further relief as may be just and proper. He is represented by Charles J. Stiegler of Stiegler Law Firm LLC in New Orleans.
